Nutritional Evaluation of Sorghum Abu70 (Sorghum Bicolor) Forage and Bagasse Silage for Sheep

This study was conducted to investigate the effect of sorghum Abu 70 and sugar cane by-product (bagasse) silage with different combination percentage with or without concentrate diet supplementation on dry matter intake and digestibility by sheep. A total of twelve entire male desert sheep with body weight averaging 33.3±5 kg were used in this study. The diet was prepared with four combination...

Effect of supplemental concentrate feeding Frequency on Groundnut Haulms’ Intake, Digestibility and Rumen Fermentation in Sheep

A total of 12 male sheep with an average BW of 19±2 kg were used in this experiment to assess the effects of frequency of supplementary concentrate mixture on digestion, rumen fermentation and voluntary feed intake of groundnut haulms. The supplemented concentrate (100 g/day) was offered once (1×), divided into two equal portion offered twice (2×) or divided into three equal portion offered...

Chemical Composition and Mineral Content of Soil, Plant and Animal Tissues in Some Camel Production Areas in the Sudan

This investigation was designed primarily to study the mineral status of camel tissue, the nutritive value and mineral status of plants browsed, soil on which the plants grew and water consumed by camel. The objectives of the study are to identify mineral status in soil, water, plant and animal tissues as constraints to camel production, in some camel production areas of the Arid And Semi Arid...

The Effect of Feed Supplementation Strategies on Productive and Reproductive Performance of Desert Sheep In The Rangeland of Kordofan, Sudan

The effects of concentrate supplementation on body condition, body weight changes and reproductive performance of grazing desert sheep were studied. The aim of the present work was to investigate the effects of supplementary feeding during mating and at late pregnancy on ewe reproductive performance and birth weight, and lamb growth rate, to investigate the effect of supplementary...

The Response of Broiler Chick\\\\\\\'s to Treated Dietary Hyacinth Bean (Lablab purpureus) seeds

An experiment was conducted to study the response of broiler chicks to treated Hyacinth bean (Lablab purpureus) seeds as a protein supplement. One hundred and sixty un-sexed one-day old broiler chicks Ross (308) were used. Four experimental diets were formulated to meet the nutrient requirements of broiler chicks according to NRC (1994). Diet (A) was the control diet with 0% Hyacinth bean...

Effect of Dietary Acidifier on Broiler Chicks Performance

The experiment was conducted to determine the effect of acidifier (Premacid) supplementation to ablanced diet on the performance of broiler chicks. Two hundred one- day -old unsexed broiler chicks were used in this experiment .Chicks were kept in a brooder house for 5 days, then were divided into two groups of 100 birds each. Ten birds per replicate. The birds were fed on two...

Proximate Chemical Composition of Some Wild Grass Seeds : Northern Darfur , Sudan

This study was carried out from family graminaceae. The seeds of five grasses, namely were studies: Dactyloctenium aegyptium (Abuasaabee), Eragrostis tremula (Banno), Eragrostis Pilosa (Umemhuge), Echinchloa Colonum (Difra) and Cenchrus biflorus (Huskaneet). The study covered chemical composition, mineral content and Tannin content. Dactyloctenium aegyptium contains 94.33% DM, 9.47% Ash,...

Effect of Urea Treatment of Sorghum Stover On The Chemical Composition And In Rumen Degradability

The objectives of the study were to estimate the effects of different levels of urea treatments on chemical composition, nutritional value and rumen degradability of sorghum Stover. This experiment contained two: untreated sorghum Stover (sorghum) served as control. The other urea levels namely: 2% and 4% urea were used. Crude protein content of the treated sorghum was enhanced (P< 0.05) over...

Effect of Ammoniation and Tree Foliage Supplementation On Bagasse Ndf Degradability, Digestibility And Rumen Fermentation

Evaluation of treated bagasse and leaves of some multipurpose trees (MPTs) namely (S. sesban, S. fermuza, Albizia lebbeck, Leauceana leucocephala and alfalfa) was carried out concerning their nutritive value. The study was conducted in a series of experiments namely, dry matter intake, digestibility, nitrogen balance, rumen fermentation, degradability and gas production procedure. Experiment...

Effect Heat Treatment of seasame cake on chemical Composition And Protein Kenetics degradation

This study was conducted to estimate the influence of heat treatment on sesame cake, chemical composition and ruminal protein degradation. Sesame cake was heated at 140, 150 and 160oC. untreated sesame cake represented control (T1) heated at 140oC for one hour (T2:1) for two hours (T2:2) for 3 hours (T2:3), heated of 150oC for one hour (T3:1) for two hours (T3:2) for 3 hours (T3:3) and...
